Play It Safe (Episode #107H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Apr 16, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

Avid collector Bob Evans is back at it, selling his prized possession, a "Mosler Salesman Sample Safe" for more than $20,000. Bob has been collecting for many years and is known to bring home unusual items - even a gorilla! The first thing his wife Jackie asked ... "is it alive?" In this episode we see a wide variety of pieces from Bob's collection, including amazing vintage barber shop items and a beautifully restored 1933 Chevrolet Coupe, which sold for more than $ 20,000.

Toys in the Attic - Paul Mikkelson Toy Boats (Episode #106H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Apr 9, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

The Mikkleson collection of toy boats is second to none. Toy boat collectors are some of the most ravenous collectors and in this episode we found one collector who started early - at the ripe age of ten. From wonderfully restored Seacraft Classics to miniature Mercury Outboard Motors, this episode will turn any jaded collector into a child at heart. You'll be amazed as some toy boats bring in higher bids than a real boat!

Weapons, Warriors, & Wonders (Episode #105H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Apr 2, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

The late Arthur Nelson was a collector and businessman from Des Moines, Iowa. He had a voracious appetite for advertising paraphernalia, country store items, toys and anything unusual. Arthur's last wishes were for Penn to sell his most treasured items, including his early 20th century toys, civil war fire arms and an 18th century Samurai warrior armor set. His children were present to see their father's treasures take exceptional bids and then passed off to the next generation of collectors. But, they kept a few personal mementos from their father's collection too.
